OUR SHORT-TERM VISION: Every youth in Transylvania County feels heard and supported

OUR LONG-TERM VISION: Every youth in Transylvania County feels confident and secure in connection, purpose, and hope


Inspired by community concerns around mental health distress among our youth and building on existing efforts of the Transylvania County Youth Support Collaborative workgroups, TC STRONG was formed to create a broad coalition of youth, school, and community leaders that will develop and implement a strategic plan to address these concerns in a collaborative and effective way.
